Local Policing Priorities

Date agreed: 13 October 2018


The Farmwatch scheme for Aberystwyth Rural is to be improved with the facility for Mobile Updates in the form of text messages which will be sent out to all members of the scheme. Updates will include appeals for information, warnings regarding suspicious vehicles, fuel thefts and missing person appeals just to name a few. The scheme currently covers all Farms that use the Nant Y moch mountain range however, it is envisaged that the scheme will be rolled out to other areas once the updating of Nant Y Moch Farmwatch scheme is completed.

Police are reminding caravan owners to secure their caravans and remove all valuables when they lock up for the winter.

In previous years there have been instances where caravans have been broken into and items stolen. October to January is a particularly quiet period when tourists and residents are away from Caravan sites, the burglars find it easy to access during these times.

To support the public, the Neighbourhood Policing Teams have flyers and posters available for Caravan and site owners to display in the windows to highlight that there are no valuables kept inside – and will also assist with additional crime prevention advice.

  • Improving security can make a real difference in deterring burglars:
  • Ensure external equipment, bicycles and children’s toys are not left outside
  • Close and lock all access doors
  • Fit window and Door locks – easily visible locks may deter some thieves 
  • Remember to remove expensive items away from windows and keep them out-of-sight 
  • Mark your property with Ultra Violet Pens. There are currently a number of innovative liquid forensic coding systems also available which are a great deterrent.

Over recent weeks there has been an increase in illegal Off Roading. The only place that you can legally drive your off-road vehicle is on byways and on private land, with the consent of the owner.

Patrols are to be increased in the areas where reports of illegal Off Roading have been received and a joint initiative with the Roads Policing Unit is to be conducted with a view to identify and where applicable, prosecute the offenders.

Op Santa (Gyrru)


Tis the season to be jolly but Dyfed Powys Police is asking revellers to also know your limits and drink sensibly.
Everyone likes to enjoy themselves at Christmas, but each year police deal with a minority of revellers who don’t know when to stop. This can often lead to problems such as anti-social behaviour and crime including violent crime, domestic abuse and drink driving offences.
We don’t want to spoil people’s enjoyment at this time of year, but we ask that revellers consider the effects that excessive drinking can have on themselves and others and drink within their limits. Alcohol can make people behave in ways they never normally would.
Visit our Operation Santa web page for advice on how to make your night out one to remember for the right reasons! follow us on twitter @DyfedPowys and @AberystwythNPT Use #OpSanta to join the conversation.



At this time of year we tend to receive reports of thefts of heating oil or fuel.

We’ve out together some top tips on how you can prevent your oil or fuel from being taken.

Taking these measures will help make life more difficult for would-be-thieves and also ensures your tank stays topped-up.

  • Be aware of your oil levels and check frequently
  • Where possible keep your levels low
  • Speak to your supplier about having a more frequent but smaller delivery
  • If you have a plastic tank, consider erecting fencing around the tank with one end hinged and locked for filling purposes. The fencing should be fixed to solid posts and should be set off the tank approximately 12 inches on all sides. The same should be fixed to the top as well
  • If you have a steel tank, then fit a quality anti-cut close-shackled padlock
  • Make sure your outside lights work and are set to detect movement.

If you see anyone going out with drums and pipes to steal fuel call us on 101 or give Crimestoppers a call anonymously on 0800 555 111.


With Christmas fast approaching we’re launching our annual Operation SANTA (Safe and Nice to All).


Aberystwyth is a safe place with low crime, but during the festive celebrations it’s easy to forget to take sensible steps to keep ourselves and our loved ones safe.


You can expect to see your local officers out and about on the streets as we increase our patrols to keep your area safe over Christmas.
